VALENCIA BOTERO, Monica Julieth  and  CARDONA ALZATE, Carlos Ariel. Carbon Dioxide Separation from Combustion Stream: A Conceptual Approach. Rev. Fac. ing. [online]. 2013, vol.22, n.34, pp.45-53. ISSN 0121-1129.

The carbon dioxide (CO2) is considered to be one of the major green house gases effect's causes, responsible for most of both global warming and climate change. Due to the CO2emission meaning, several physic and chemical capture and storage processes have been proposed, especially from combustion procedures. In this work, carbon capture technologies were reviewed. Here, two scenarios for post-combustion carbon capture from methanol combustion are presented. The first one is a chemical absorption separation with monoethanolamine. The second one is a separation by the distillation tower. The results indicate that both technologies are appropriated, but the distillation has higher yields than the chemical absorption.
